One Faster speed video converter recommended by one of my friends

Nowadays, numerous software are designed to achieve the function of video formats conversion. However, nearly all of these converters have some defects , such as having or performing too much slow converting speed, so many complicated steps to operate, some even having the audio-video out of sync issues, etc.

Yesterday, one of my friends told me that he had found a new converter, which has much faster converting speed, and especially do not have the audio-video out of sync ,which people usually encountered while doing video converting. For I am also a video lover, he called me excitedly with the intention of recommending it . Ah, forgot to mention its name. This software is called Pavtube [url=***********]Video Converter for Mac[/url]. After got the recommendation from my friend, I could not wait to have a try about it.

I tested it to see whether its converting speed is as fast as my friend said.
The following is the contents and results of my tests.

[b]Test 1:[/b]
Input file: a MKV file in size of 75.1MB;
Output format: iPhone 3G MPEG-4 640x480 (*.mp4);
Output files: Mp4 files, and the size is 19.47M
Time expenditure: 1’16’’ (1 minute and 16 seconds)
view the pics as follow:

Output format: iPod Nano 4 640x480 (*.mov);
Time expenditure: 1’10’’ (1 minute and 10 seconds)

[b]Test 2:[/b]
Input file: an AVI file in size of 97.5 MB;
Output format: iPhone 3G MPEG-4 640x480 (*.mp4);
Time expenditure: 1’ (1 minute)

Output format: iPod Nano 4 640x480 (*.mov);
Time expenditure: 1’15’’ (1 minute and 15 seconds)

[b]Test 3:[/b]
Input file: a DIVX file in size of 135.9 MB;
Output format: iPhone 3G MPEG-4 640x480 (*.mp4);
Time expenditure: 1’35’’ (1 minute and 35 seconds)

Output format: iPod Nano 4 640x480 (*.mov);
Time expenditure: 1’34’’ (1 minute and 34 seconds)

According to my former experiences, it is exactly much faster than some other video converters I’ve used before. By the way, I didn’t find it has the problem of audio-video out of sync too; at least I did not encounter this problem in my test.

If you have interest in it, you can also try it, it is more than words.
